Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Allen Arthur Albee

I was a reserve Officer when Allen was killed. It is hard to beleive that he has been gone for so many years. Allen mad a big impression on me. I will never forget that god rest your soul Allen. Never forgotten always remembered.

I had been on the Burnett County Reserve Officer's Corp at the time that Allen and Mike Severson from Polk County were shot. The shooting happened about three blocks from my house, which was also my parents. It was hard to believe that something like that could happen in small little Webster, and it showed that no matter how small the town, how small the agency, the heroics of officers/deputies like Allen doesn't change. You were loved by many, and will be remembered by many forever.

I met Al after beginning my career in Law Enforcement as a Reserve Officer with Burnett County. At that time there wasn't a lot of initial training, so needless to say I had very little idea of what I was doing. In the short time I got to know him, Al made a big impression on me and how I did my job. I hope I am a better police officer, in part, because of some of those things I learned from him. Al is still missed by his family and those who knew him.

Rest in peace, Deputy Albee. You will not be forgotten.

It really doesn't seem like 15 years ago that Alan went to be with the Lord. It seems like just yesterday he and my dad, who was a reserve for the department, were working together or roasting the pig at the Lake 26 campout. I will never forget how Alan kept his friendship with my dad after my dad went through treatment for alcoholism even though my dad was no longer on the force. Albee is just one of the reasons I went into a career as a law enforcement officer as well.
Alan is gone, but not forgotten.

Deputy Albee was shot and killed while tyring to apprehened a young man without using lethal force against the suspect. His kindness toward the suspect resulted in his own death and the shooting of a Polk County Deputy, Mike Seversen, who remains paralyzed from the shooting. The suspect was immediately shot and killed by other officers at the scene.

Deputy Albee was a large and gentle man from what I remember of him. I am sure Deputy Albee's kindness toward the suspect will be rewarded in heaven as it surely was not rewarded here on earth.

His death was a lesson for me as a police officer that I have never forgotten. Kindness is an important aspect of this job and life as well, but there are times like this, when it is also irrelevant.

I still think of him after so many years and it seems that it was not very long ago that this happened.

Allen has earned his place with the good Lord and may he always rest in peace.
